Lens Review
Introduction | Image quality ranking | Nikon 1 NIKKOR VR 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 vs competition | Nikon 1 NIKKOR 18.5mm f/1.8 vs competition | Conclusion

Nikon can be praised for expanding the 1 Nikkor lens range so quickly and the 18.5mm f/1.8 is a good choice for stills and budding movie-makers. As it stands, it’s the highest performing lens in the range but at $187, it’s almost as expensive as the firm’s full-frame AF-S 50mm f/1.8G. For those looking for additional versatility, the 1 Nikkor 6.7-13mm f/3.5-5.6 may be more appealing. It offers similar sharpness to the 1 Nikkor 18.5mm, and while lacking the constant aperture found on Sony equivalent, it does have stabilization built-in.
